My husband decided that since we live on a farm, we should have chickens. I'm not positive that his assesment is right, but low and behold, we have 7 chicks. I think we're doing everything correclty so far. I just don't know how to tell how old these chicks are and when they should start going outside, or how long we have to build a coop? How do you know how old they are? The local TSC employee wasn't helpful when he sold them to us.
